  1. Hi @Bostonstang and welcome to the forum! Your best bet would be to wash the area thoroughly, clay to remove any contamination in the scuff, and then machine polish. Since those scuffs look a little deep, you will want to start with a Microfiber Cutting Pad and our blue Compound, machine speed set to 5 or 6 on the Swirl Killer 15MM Polisher, or speed 4-5 on the Swirl Killer Mini Polisher. Make 3 left-right and 3 up-down passes over the area, using a little bit of pressure, but not enough to stall the pad oscillations. Wipe away the Compound residue and inspect the surface. It should be impr
  2. Tom, if the Microfiber/Blue Pad isn't cutting enough, try the One Step Pad with Compound. It will be a more aggressive cut and will generate heat more quickly, so be aware of your panel temperature so that it does not get too hot. Work in a smaller area (1-foot by 1-foot) with a very slow, even arm movement, with slight downward pressure, speed 5 or 6 on the Swirl Killer 15MM, or 4-5 on the Swirl Killer Mini or Swirl Killer Pro (I'm not sure what type of machine you are using). What kind of vehicle are you working on? How old is it and does it still have original paint? Using an acid wheel cle
  3. Jon, if you're done with Ceramic Boost, I would recommend to try Graphene Detail Spray or CS3 for maintenance. Use either one sparingly - a few light mists, panel by panel.
  4. Yep, what Chris said ^^^ Wash the area or panel first to ensure it is free of all dust or dirt. Use a soap with no shine or protective additives - blue Car Shampoo or Mega Foam would be my recommendations. Is the stain on the Corvette or the Equinox? At 3-4 months of application, it may still be very durable on the Corvette since you seldom drive it, but it is most likely wearing away some on the Equinox since it is driven more often. Polishing through the coating may not be too difficult on either. If you have our old Orange Foam Pad and orange Correcting Polish or the even old
  5. What I highlighted in bold could also potentially be a large factor in the coating bonding and curing properly. We strongly suggest applying ceramic coatings indoors in a garage, where temperature, humidity, and moisture can be controlled better. Those all play a factor in how a coating flashes, bonds, and cures. Your water beads in the last picture look pretty good to me! Keep in mind that yes, the Graphene Ceramic Coating will have a higher contact angle, but that does not necessarily mean that every water bead will fall off of the vehicle, especially if there is dust or dirt on the surfa
  6. @07stanggt are you having issues with our first 8oz/12oz sprayer design - the all black sprayer with the left-right locking tab? Or are the problems with the current 8oz/12oz sprayer with the removable red plastic circle trigger lock? The current ones with the red plastic trigger lock have been working much better for me. Ceramic Spray Coating and Graphene Ceramic Spray Coating will crystallize at the end of the spray nozzle after use, so I usually take my fingernail or a needle to break away the hardened ceramic and then they will work fine for me again. Just make sure not to try to pull the
  7. The current 16oz sprayers with the rotating head assembly and shorter pick up tube are due to a worldwide shortage on sprayers. We should eventually get back to the normal 16oz sprayers with the longer pick up tube and fixed sprayer head. It is a matter of that was all that we could source at the time.
  8. That's definitely the one in the picture with some editing to the photo most likely to bring out the color and shadowing more. If you notice, the sleeves are light tan. I still think it looks great 👍
  9. Hi Andy, and welcome to the forum, I do apologize that no one got back to you on this thread, I'm just seeing it now! Do you have any pictures of these white dots showing up? Are they on paint, glass, textured plastics, or all areas? Make sure to always shake up the Ceramic Boost bottle thoroughly before every use to mix all of the chemicals back together. You could also try to clean out the spray nozzle in a bottle of water only - it's possible that some of the chemical dried up in the spray, which is then going onto the surface of the vehicle. Spray water through the nozzle until only cl
  10. I absolutely love the designs the team came up with this year! Great job! My wallet was saying mean things to me an hour ago 😆
  11. There's a crewneck sweatshirt and hoodie available 👍 https://adamspolishes.com/collections/new-just-in/products/adams-tan-fall-crewneck https://adamspolishes.com/collections/new-just-in/products/adams-navy-fall-hoodie
  12. To add to what Chris said, you could certainly put a layer of Graphene Ceramic Spray Coating on top of your existing coating to sort of refresh and re-up the coating; however, you will want to do a very thorough wash and Surface Prep at a minimum before applying the Graphene Ceramic Spray Coating. It's also important to note that it will not last as long on the surface since it is trying to bond to an already cured layer of ceramic coating, rather than bare clear coat. You could then maintain with Graphene Detail Spray. To reduce some of the confusion, here are some general combinations fo
  13. Ouch, sorry about that Ray! As a warning, I would be hesitant to use Tire & Rubber Cleaner on powder coated running boards as well - it's good to hear that it works well for you, but it is intended for rubber and textured exterior plastics. Some powder coating is much more durable than others, so I'll usually just use Car Shampoo and water, or I'll go to Eco All Purpose Cleaner if I need a little more aggressive cleaning. Revive Hand Polish should hopefully bring those back if you have any, but it may take an application or two. Again, sorry for the frustration there
  14. Hi there, there are some great suggestions in here! As far as finding our products, yes we're mainly an online-based retailer; however, many Chevrolet dealerships now carry some of our product line, including a Waterless Wash Kit with the 16oz bottle and Waterless Wash Towels if you would like to try it out before grabbing the gallon. Waterless Wash is without question one of the products I use the most. It's great for removing dust and light dirt, cleaning up an engine bay, door jambs, and I use it as a drying aid after a full wash sometimes too! I like that it's ready-to-use - no diluting
  15. What Dave said ^^^^. Plastics from different manufacturers can react differently, especially depending on the prep work that was involved to remove any previous dressings and so on. Some customers have been experiencing a small amount of white chalky appearance on certain trims if you do not level and wipe it away, so I agree with Dave in that you should level and wipe any of our coatings on plastic trim just to be safe.
